Pool Scouts recently gained new franchisees in the Atlanta metro area. While Pool Scouts already has a presence in Savannah, Georgia, Atlanta metro opens up a whole new level of opportunity. FranBridge Capital, a private equity firm has signed a 10-unit deal with Buzz Franchise Brands. They purchased four territories in the Atlanta metro area for Pool Scouts, as well as six territories for sister brand Home Clean Heroes – both of which are now open.
You might be wondering what made our newest franchisees, Jon Ostenson, Allan Young and Christian Pillat make such a big decision during such uncertain times? For many, franchise ownership is a way to be in control of your future, and that’s exactly what this group is doing. As existing operators of the brand Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning, Jon, Allan and Christian are excited to be the leaders of the home service industry in the Atlanta area. With their existing background in franchise ownership, and the service industry in particular, both Pool Scouts and Home Clean Heroes will be a great fit. They have established business management practices in place that have proven to fit well with the franchise model that Buzz Franchise Brands follows, setting them up for success.
Christian said their rollout of all territories over the next nine months will be a scaled rollout. “The dream is to become a brand name in the Atlanta area for pool and house cleaning services. As a private equity firm, we also want to return strong funds to our investors.”
Buzz Franchise Brands CEO Kevin Wilson, who has prior experience with the Atlanta market from Mosquito Joe, said that Atlanta is the perfect place for both Pool Scouts and Home Clean Heroes to thrive. “FranBridge Capital is the perfect partner for Buzz Franchise Brands, and as the first multi-brand franchisee, they will usher in a new era of growth for the company,” Wilson said. Pool Scouts president Michael Wagner added, “Jon, Allan and Christian are sophisticated business executives who are also well-established in the Atlanta area. They know their market extremely well and will be able to hit the ground running in terms of identifying and serving their clientele.”
Aside from FranBridge Capital being a strong franchisee that will grow the business well, Christian said that the city is “growing rapidly and attracting top talent and big-name brands. With the home services market being so fragmented, there is a massive opportunity within Atlanta to become the premier home service provider by leveraging technology to provide safe, punctual and professional home services experiences. For Pool Scouts specifically, Atlanta is currently the number-one growing pool market in the nation according to the number of pool permits being issued.”
While FranBridge is already thriving in the North Atlanta area, there is still plenty of opportunity to own a Pool Scouts franchise in Atlanta, with a few territories left!
